Question about 1992 Toyota Paseo
The motor mount broke and engine tilted. The engine will turn over after replacing motor mount, but will not start. We replaced cap, rotor and plugs but still will not start. Ignition coil could be the problem. Where is it located and how do I remove for testing?
First off, no engine sized stated not even cylinder counts.
makes this kinda hard if we dont know the engine,huh?\
NO COUNTRY either stated.... lots of variances there.
hard for you too, it seems. 1.3L or 1.5L I4?
USA used mostly , so ill pretend it's that..... here....
1.5 L 5E-FE I4 why not test for spark and if the ECU sees spark missing it CUTS FUEL, (for safety reasons) so spark is first if engine is good, see?
so you never checked for spark on an engine before.?
the where is it question, im gobsmacked, its at the other end of the wire from each spark plug, for sure, Mr. Tesla's induction coil is there.
some hide, some inside dizzy and today you get 4 or 6 on Toys.
all this is convered in the FSM (get one) or at the the virtual FSM
called,,,,,,,,,,alldata.com (google finds it 1st hit)
so ill log in for you.
looks like engine has a DISTRUTOR>
ok if true.
then the COIL is in 1 of 2 places, connected to the center
of the distributor cap, 5 terminal or inside the dizzy
keep in mind that the early 90s was a transition era. Spark !
some had dizzy others are DIS.
DIS is 4 cop coils. one coil on top of the spark plug
here is vast photos on line, of many 5E-FE engines.
in JAPAN the engine had a DIZZY
in USA it had COPS
what you have not sure.
i read in the wiki that the 5E went to cops, in 1995 (USA)
so it has a dizzy. in the 5E.
here is a new coil. for the dizzy
the dizzy has only 4 terminals on top , that fact means it makes the
high voltage by all its self and this hidden coil
now not guessing,?
we do what.? we do tests. i bet your coil is fine.
here is a test flow>
i find spark dead on all 4 spark plugs.
i then ask the ECU to tell me why its dead, 99% of times i can
so what do i do? i connect the diagnostic jumper (OBD1 system)
i insert my paper clip jumper
then crank the engine for 5 seconds, release the key (not off)
and behold , i get CEL flash codes,
saying,,,,, bad CMP, BAD CKP
all cars up to 1996 (most) work like that, they have flash codes.
now my useless guesses.....
my guess. is ckp sensor wires fell off
the ground to the DIZZY snapped.>
i take a spare good spark plug , gapped to spec.
i ground the shell off the spark plug to the engine metal.
i connect the spark wire.
i then crank and see.????
see video of spark
the coil can be tested by making a spark test wire, (old spark wire)
and an aligator clip, we ground the spark plug.
dizzy cap removed.
then connect the clip to the coil spring clip seen in the rock auto link above. and test coil spark,.
if all 4 spark plugs are dead and the coil is good.
99% of time its caused by
1: cam timing way off. slipped belt or chain snap
2: someone spun the dizzy willy nilly in its base.
Those are the ropes. i use.

crankshaft sensor, or computer on toyotas then it was usually the distributor or the computer, but the crankshaft sensor might be bad too thats what helps to get you spark.
